Good News

We received an e-mail on Monday that said our paperwork has been translated into Hungarian and submitted AND George, our facilitator, is in Hungary now... looking!  Wow!  We are praying HARD for him to find our Lizzie and to know that she is the one for us.  We are unsure about George's faith, and we hope that he will know that he is being led and that we can share with him the mighty power of our God!

Most of you know that I am not a facebook person and I struggle with putting "too much" personal information here - but this has been on my heart all week, so here goes...

Someone told me this week that Reese and I are "special people" and that it takes "special people" to adopt.  This absolutely did NOT offend me and it was meant in a kind, sweet way, BUT...
Here is the truth - Reese and I are trying to listen and obey God in our lives.   I can only imagine the times we've missed the "call."  The "call" will look different in all of our lives.  The important part is trusting in the Lord and listening and obeying Him!!

This week I've yelled at a child and had to apologize and ask forgiveness, been short with my husband, neglected household duties to play on the computer and so much more!  I feel unworthy everyday and even have doubts about why God would choose us to parent another precious child.  What an honor to be a mother and to have the gift of growing these children that aren't really ours.  I pray that all three of my children grow into the people that God wants them to be and that I don't get in His way!

I am clinging to this verse as I attempt to surrender each day to Him and truly put Him first - "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these thing will be added unto you."

Hope you have a blessed day!
